Hi guys

I’m abit concerned about my bearded dragon lately. She has been quite lethargic and not eating or drinking a lot lately. She seems to have what looks like a burn mark on her right limb and it looks like she’s shedding too but only on her knees. The shed looks like her scales are falling off and when I touch it she pulls her away. I’ve also recently noticed some marks on her beard and I’m not sure what it is. If anyone has anything information I’d really appreciate it. :)

I don't see obvious signs of infection in those photos. Beard looks normal. The top of the leg looks like there are some damaged scales so I'd keep an eye on that to see if the damaged area appears to spread. It may wind up looking normal again after the next shed. If it starts spreading then I'd have a vet check a sample to see what's going on though. Generally I don't see cause for concern.

I agree I see nothing out of the ordinary either.

The toe does look a little swollen, possibly, but it could just be the start of a foot shed. :)

Hello,

I agree, he looks pretty healthy & I don't really see any fungal type of issues or other skin
type of ailments. I see a little odd pigmentation areas or a few areas where the scales have
come off, but it doesn't look like anything serious.
